Note that this will not work if you use the "Automatic configuration
setting for a proxy, which IE and various other browsers support.
Supporting that is just too much work to be worth doing for something
checking for a new version.
If you do have actual proxy details to enter, then:
1. Open the "default_bayes_customize.ini" file in your data
If there isn't such a file, create one (with (eg) Notepad).
2. At the end of that file, add these lines, filling in the
details (excluding the """):
If you don't need to specify a username/password, you can leave those
out. If your proxy port is 8080, you can leave out the (eg) :8081 part.
3. Restart Outlook.
